Celebrating Success With Sarah From The Creation Station Sunbury-On-Thames

Sarah had been working as an EYFS Teaching Assistant for 15 years and was looking for a new challenge.  She wanted something that would still enable her to work with children but would allow her to be in control of her working hours and spend as much time as possible with her family.  She now runs award-winning, fun, creative art and craft classes, after-school clubs, parties and events for all ages in Sunbury-On-Thames.

Sarah is most definitely THE person to speak to for keeping your little ones creative and entertained! 

We are proud to have presented Sarah our 'Franchisee of The Month' award for February 2020.  Sarah has been growing her business over the last 5 years and successfully adapting and changing it to suit her own needs - including when she had another baby.  She has so many fantastic plans and we can't wait to see what the next 12 months brings for The Creation Station Sunbury-On-Thames. Well done Sarah!    

Sarah Cattley from The Creation Station Sunbury-On-Thames

Why did you want to run your own business?

"I wanted to make decisions for myself and work my own hours, running my own classes.  I am passionate about children being able to express themselves in other ways rather than just English and Maths because all children have strengths in other ways that can't be shown in a test."

What attracted you to The Creation Station?

"The thought of setting up my own business seemed too difficult.  The Creation Station has helped me so much with self belief and the security of having sessions plans, health and safety, support and all the social media resources provided for you is very reassuring."

"My little girl was 4 years old at the time.  She loved the session activities - her little face was so happy and you could see the enjoyment in her eyes.  For me I know it was the right thing for me to be doing going forward."

Describe your highlights so far...

"When I launched my after-school 'Create Clubs' I got a full club the first term and many of the children enjoyed being able to make their art work come to life using their own ideas and imaginations."

"I love being involved in different events and meeting new children.  I worked with the NCT to offer baby footprint art for Halloween and Easter.  I've recently been working with a school for 'Book Week' to focus on imagination, creative writing, being illustrators and artists."

Don't just take our word for it, look what parents say about Sarah & her classes...

How do you feel about the future?

"I will have been running my business for 5 years in May and am looking forward to growing my business even further.  I am excited to be launching another after-school club and can't wait to work with more schools to run creative art curriculum workshops."

"Running my own business has helped me to grow as a person and I learn so many new things every day."

I really enjoyed the session yesterday…

I really enjoyed the session yesterday and had great fun making my clay vase. Thank you for organising it. It was great that the clay and decorative bits were all supplied. I'm hoping to book on another session soon. Thanks, Sophie

Brilliant class

Absolutely loved the online 'air drying clay' session, it was just so nice to do something for myself, from the comfort of home. Being a single mum, I find it very hard to get out for classes, so this was the perfect solution. Nat was so lovely, she made it so enjoyable - thank you xxx

Excellent service! Great choices!

In the middle of lockdown, we ordered a number of craft packs from Alexis and were very pleased with the service. She helped us to choose some fantastic kits that our 4 year old loved. They were all great quality and personally delivered very quickly. I have already and would continue to highly recommend the creation station. I also run a homeschooling group on Facebook and can confirm that the members have all been really pleased with the offering and service available.

I absolutely loved Nats class!

I absolutely loved Nats class!! She made myself and my daughter feel so welcome on zoom!!! The class had a really cosy, casual feel, but I also learnt a new skill!!! Nat took time to make sure each of us felt confident! She valued our art and gave us lots of praise! I'm not arty, but I came away thinking I can do this!! This was my first class with Nat, and I will definitely be joining one of her classes again!!

Fabulous Alexis

Had a fab online mandala class with Alexis last night from the comfort of my own garden in North Staffs. Alexis made the whole thing really easy to follow, went the extra mile with our resources and I was super pleased with the result. She's also provided craft packs for my kids during lockdown which have been amazing.

Online Mandala Class

I really enjoyed the online Mandala class with Nat at Stafford South. She was really great at explaining the technique and made sure everyone felt at ease. There was a good mix of conversation and concentration! Nat was very professional, friendly and encouraging. I will definitely be doing more of her online classes in the future.
